Winner: Malik Heath

Undrafted rookie receiver Malik Heath continues to give the Packers a headache. All he does is make plays. Heath has shown his ability as a receiver but also offers plenty as a blocker, which will impress head coach Matt LaFleur.

Heath led the Packers in receiving against the Patriots, making five catches for 75 yards. He beat first-round pick Christian Gonzalez, which is notable. Heath continues to impress and may have done enough to force his way onto the Packers' 53-man roster.

Loser: Josh Myers

It hasn't been a great summer for center Josh Myers. While all signs point toward him remaining the starter for the Packers, he hasn't played well enough to give the team any confidence.

On Saturday evening against the Patriots, Myers snapped a ball over Jordan Love's head, leading to a turnover. Mistakes like this one simply can't happen once the regular season begins. They don't just ruin drives, but can cost the Packers games.

Green Bay doesn't have much choice but to continue with Myers. Moving Zach Tom to center could happen, but he is best suited at right tackle, where he is projected to start.

But if Myers continues to make mistakes, the Packers will have to consider their options.
